Filter King & DCOE - Fuel line routing


Leucadian
Go to solution Solved by AceAndrew,

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a filter king and gauge from I.E and I plan on mounting it on the firewall, similar to this setup:

My question is regarding the routing of the fuel lines back to the carb from this location, and where/how I should mount the pressure gauge?  Does anyone have close ups of a similar install?  

 

Can I run a 90 degree fitting off of the carb and a 90 at the filter and connect the two?  Or should I just snake a line from the carbs to the filter and call it a day?  Crude drawing with my setup, for reference

Thanks!

The inlet on my filter king is on the left (which is where I drill/tapped for the pressure gauge).  The right outlet I’ll just loop the fuel hose around.

Never occurred to me to drill and tap.  Thanks!

Didn't want to start another thread for this, but I'd like to remove the bracket on the firewall that held the emissions control equipment:

Is it possible to take an angle grinder to it and cut it out, or will that leave a sizeable hole?  There's also not a ton of room to maneuver back there.  I just want a smooth surface where I can mount my Filter King.

Emissions control bracket looks like a good place to mount the filter king without having to make holes in the firewall?

 

That was my original thought, but I may not have clearance for the gauge on top of the filter, like Andrew's setup.

 

I'll test fit it when the gauge and mounting bracket arrives

That's what I did. My engine bay has a lot more patina though....   I put my fuel pressure gauge on  90 deg. elbow to make sure it didn't contact anything. I actually like it this way as I can glance over and easily see it while I'm leaning in to the engine bay adusting the carbs.

If you remove that mount you'll sure screw up that nice paint, I think I would make a plate that screws to that mount and allows the filter to be mounted low enough to fit the gauge.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
